Le kaléidoscope propose une veille de sites croisant art, vidéo, féminisme, cinéma, genre.... Une veille qui collecte et partage.
Cette interface agit tel "un instrument tubulaire contenant un jeu de miroirs et des fragments de verre mobiles, diversement découpés et colorés, produisant des figures qui varient à chaque secousse reçue par l’appareil." (définition du kaléidoscope par notre chère Académie française) auquel on aurait judicieusement ajouté du gender.

Un mobilier dans notre genre ... Clara Porset et ses amies artistes, Art Institute Chicago.
Vue d'exposition: la partie Clara Porset, avec (ci-dessus au mur et ci-dessous) un tapis de laine tissée par Cynthia Sargent, 1958 et (ci dessous à gauche) une chaise d'enfant butaque de Clara Porset, ca 1972 en bois de cyprès et vachette. Politiquement, il y a une une certaine jouissance à explorer de Chicago comment le Mexique fut une destination-refuge pour des personnalités culturelles européennes, mais aussi migrant depuis les Etats-Unis. Pas seulement pour ses civilisations anciennes et son archéologie: le Mexique moderne a été—est—une destination déterminante pour transformer pratiques, usages et sources pour divers·es artistes, notamment d'Amérique du Nord. L''exposition porte un titre évocateur "Dans un nuage, dans un mur, dans une chaise [sous titre: six modernistes au Mexique au (...)

Symphonies tropicales*, David Hartt, Frank Lloyd Wright.
Je vais commencer à l'envers de mon voyage, par sa fin, sa toute dernière étape à Philadelphie, où une conjonction heureuse à permis de prolonger la visite de l'exposition fierce pussy, chapitre 5 (à l'ICA, après les quatre premiers qui se tenaient à la Beeler Gallery de Columbus) par celle de David Hartt. The Histories (Le Mancenillier) est la première commande passée à un·e artiste par le comité de préservation de la synagogue Beth Sholom, dont l'architecture fut elle-même commandée au début des années 1950 à Frank Lloyd Wright, en guise de rhapsodie aux juif·ve·s américains. Elle fut finie en 1959 après la mort de ce dernier, à l'instar du Guggenheim de New York. Le bâtiment est moche et sublime à la fois. Il a l'allure d'un palais siamois revu et corrigé à la mode Art Déco, et interprété en matériaux (...)

By Nonkululeko “Sicka” Mthunzi The late Tswarelo ‘Pinky’ Moths,  was brutally murdered and left under a platform in Northmead train station, in Benoni, Ekurhuleni Municipality. A 21-year-old full of life and free spirited, he loved and sacrificed for his mum and sadly today his family had to say good bye so soon without any justice for his death. On 7th October 2019 I received a text and a picture about the death of Tswarelo. Personally I didn’t know him but I have seen him once or twice around our township. This brought so much emotions to me and even heartbreak when I was told he was Lesego Masilela’s cousin. No family deserves so much sadness and no mother deserves to bury their child especially in that state. I called Lesego the same day to confirm the news and I didn’t love what she (...)

Text by Maureen Majola Photos by Ts’episo Mahooe A group of femme lesbians from Mpumalanga but currently residing in joburg decided to come together and form a group that will tackle issues that are faced by same sex couples and individuals on a daily basis. Their aim is to speak about issues that we don’t normally speak about as homosexuals and find ways to have healthy lasting relationships. The event took place on the 5th of October 2019 in Witbank at Klipfontein Dam. People came out wearing their denim and white clothes, looking fresh like the bright spring sunshine. The turn up in numbers wasn’t that good due to a number of other events that were happening like Pretoria pride, which is about an 1h30 minutes away from Witbank. This event happened a week after soweto pride which (...)

By: Lindiwe Dhlamini Soweto Pride has always been one of my favorite LGBTIAQ+ events because of its roots and substance. It used to be about the issues that affect us as LGBTIAQ+ people, it was about creating awareness of our existence until it lost its meaning. On the 28th of September 2019, Forum for the Empowerment of Women (FEW) hosted Soweto Pride for its 15th year anniversary at Ubuntu Kraal situated at Orlando West, Soweto. For the first time attending Soweto Pride, I felt disconnected, the people were friendly and the overall event was a success. I have a few concerns to raise with the route our LGBTIAQ+ Prides are taking I was not going to share my thoughts but, I feel it is important to document our own stories, so, here it (...)

A la place de ce post, il y aurait du y avoir une video de Jessye Norman chantant D'amour l'ardente flamme, de Berlioz, à Paris en 1983 et en hommage à Maria Callas- c'est pas compliqué, elle est sur YouTube. La mort de Jessye Norman m'a émue. Je l'avais entendue à Paris, au Châtelet, dans des récitals (les Kindertotenlieder) ou même dans ce truc "à la carafe" de Bob Wilson (Great Day in the Morning), dont l'imitation, par Patrick Bracco, nous faisait pisser de rire, grâce aux cigarettes du même acabit. De la même façon, lorsque je suis entrée dans la première salle de l'exposition Henrik Olesen à Madrid, j'ai fondu en larmes. Peut-être l'expo Delphine Seyrig, vernie la veille, m'avait déjà mise en condition. Peut-être importait-il que j'aie déjà vu (exposées chez Crousel) ces vitrines accrochées au (...)

Chantal Akerman, Woman Sitting After Killing, 2001. 1-Au cœur de l’exposition du Reina Sofia, il y a Delphine Seyrig en Jeanne Dielman. Ou plutôt: il y a une femme. Ou plutôt, il y a une femme en buste, assise à une table si bien astiquée qu’on doit y voir son reflet dédoublé. Elle y appuie ses bras. Elle a les mains sur la table, où trône aussi une soupière en porcelaine. Still Life, vie silencieuse. Derrière elle, l’horizon est complètement bouché par l’intérieur d’un appartement, le buffet avec sa vitrine, le mur, les motifs d’un rideau ou d’une tapisserie, de sorte qu’on y respire guère. Ou plutôt, il y a 7 fois le buste de cette femme démultipliée, les mains sur la table, et quand on se penche vraiment sur l’image, qui n’est pas une image photographique, pas un photogramme, mais le plan d'un film (...)

by Lindiwe Dhlamini  It is that time of the year in Gauteng where LGBTIAQ+ Pride protests and celebrations take place. On the 14th of September 2019 I had the opportunity to attend Ekurhuleni Pride. Celebrating its 11thyear; for the first time ever, it took place in Daveyton hosted by EPOC LGBTI and Daveyton Uthingo – The Rainbow which are both LGBTIAQ+[1]organizations in that area. The theme was LGBTIAQ+ and religion which saw members of the LGBTIAQ+ community marching in their religious uniforms in celebration of who they are. It was particularly fascinating to see Reverends in their clerical gowns, in attendance and leading the Pride march. Rev. Klass, Rev. Nokuthula Dhladhla, Rev. Sibisi, Rev. Emma and Rev. Tebogo Moema marched proudly around the streets of Daveyton shouting, (...)

2019 Sep. 19 : Ikhono Lase Natali voyages to Cape Town

by Lindiwe Dhlamini It is a few weeks since the opening of Ikhono Lase Natali (ILN)at A4 Arts Foundation in Cape Town on the 31st August 2019. Taking place for the first time in the Western Cape; ILN is a commissioned project by Professor/Sir Zanele Muholi to have Somnyama Ngonyama interpreted in different styles of art. This project is a collaboration with twenty-five (25) artists from KwaZulu-Natal where Muholi was born and bred.  The 25 artist selection is done to commemorate 25 years of democracy in South Africa. And to inspire established artists to share wealth by working with community artists who may not have the same privilege to occupy spaces that show off their artistic talents. ILN is curated by Bajabulile Dhlamini and Thobeka Bhengu who work closely with the artists and conduct (...)

by Wakhe Sebenza There are very few people who really live life to the fullest, this is how the late Phindile Madlala was described at her Funeral on Sunday 08.09.19 in Pinetown KwaZulu-Natal where all her friends and family gathered to pay their last respects. I know there are a lot of reasons one might not be able to attend a funeral of their loved ones, be it distance, finances or timing. I almost didn’t make it to this one too, I found myself talking to the spirit of the late saying “My friend, you understand my situation, you know I’d love to attend but you understand right?” isn’t it amazing how when our loved ones pass on we feel they are staying with us in spirit? Stepped out of view Yes, but they become more present than ever, is it just my belief? The last time I wrote about (...)

By: Lindiwe Dhlamini The cliché “life is too short” has never made sense to me because most of those who would use it are people who have been alive for 20 years or more. To me that is not short, it was until the untimely death of our colleague Phindile Madlala when it started to make sense. Phindile was a dedicated member of Inkanyiso.org who was working with schools around KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) educating learners about art and photography. Most of us know Phindile as Wendy Khumalo’s lover who is also a member of Inkanyiso. Both Phindile and Wendy are participants in Faces and Phases (F&P) a photographical documentation of black Queer [1] identifying people. When the news of Phindile’s passing were circulated on the 2nd of September 2019 we were all in disbelief as most of us had just (...)

Every year around the globe where homosexuality is legal and same-sex marriage is legally recognized, they take to the streets to celebrate what has been achieved at annual pride parades celebrations.

Few minutes after I arrived at David’s place, his guests also started to arrive. These were not just any guests; they were intellectual black queer men. While waiting for everyone else who was still on their way they opened a bottle of wine. And very interesting conversations emerged, like when someone asked what everyone thought on the issue of being “post-gay” meaning is the public seeing being gay as being equally valid forms of human (...)

The exhibition opened with blessings from Pastor Tebo Moema and a thought provoking poem by Christie Van Zyl. Prof. Sir Zanele Muholi led us in song bringing a diverse group of people into oneness. A moment of learning and unlearning. They also recommended tools for exploration like Sarah Thornton’s book, Seven Days in the Art World.
